Hertha is a living community for people with mental disabilities. It is located in Herskind, a small village whose inhabitants are integrated into the lives and rhythm of the residents.
The community consists of 2 houses and 19 residents, who have different psychological and mental challenges. Some of them are also physically impaired, but all of them have the ability to walk. The degree to which their disability affects their life varies, from high independence to a few without any verbal language. Most of them are aged 18-30 years.
In the village, there are different workshops where both the residents and the volunteers will work: Bakery, biodynamic market garden, biodynamic farm, dairy, weave shed, kitchen and laundry. In the workshops, we make products which are used by the residents and, moreover, the bakery and dairy products are sold in ecological shops to kindergartens and other institutions in the area.
